It's all about the luggage...

What do you pack when you are jumping into the abyss?

Yes, it's a melodramatic analogy, but bear with me.

Eventually all of us will stand at the edge... it's not always a bad thing.. but when we stand there, looking into the unknown, we make choices about what we are taking with us.

A parachute slows things down, gives us time to experience the fall, time to (oh horrors!) feel something. Not my preferred choice of travel! Packing an anvil is the quickest way to the bottom.

Of course, there are some unfortunate side effects to travelling downward with an anvil. Just ask Wile E. Coyote. Eventually someone is going to have to sort out the mess. I guess that's what I'll be doing here.
